Thumbs up StarCraft II working perfect in WINE.

Well so far anyway. I read it works out of the box and it does for me, I didn't have to do any tweaks to get it running.

Nice! Looks a little squished . . . What frame rates are you getting?

That's just in window mode for the screenshot and works just fine in fullscreen 1440x900, everything I can set to to ultra. I'm not even hitting 20fps. :/

It's still playable though but to be expected with such games with HDR, AO. I'd guess in Windows I'd get about 30-40fps.

Edit: Just tried OpenGL mode in WINE and I can get 20fps on Ultra settings.

Not bad. As long as you get decent steady framerates, then that's really awesome.

That's impressive. Have you ever tried the commercial products for gaming on Linux, Sean?

I wonder how those perform.

My mate told me that Crossover performs better, since he brought it mainly for Civ4. I couldn't tell you how other games perform though.
